The first annual Super Sensing Forum, brainchild of acclaimed Japanese product designer and design engineer Satoshi Nakagawa, brought together a wide range of designers, engineers and researchers to discuss design that integrates sensor technology with the five human senses.
Super Sensing is an approach that dramatically changes the domains in which our sensory organs operate and the objects on which they focus. In the Super Sensing paradigm, advanced sensor technologies expand the realms into which our senses can reach and the fields in which they record.
This forum is the first to focus on the usefulness and possibilities of sensing design and technologies in a wide range of industries. In so doing, the members are working to develop practical solutions that create value for industry in the form of new sensing designs.
As a keynote speaker, Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman spoke about the advancements in smart textiles and her own work in translating wearable technology into desirable kinetic accessories as beautiful adornments that bring us closer to one another through authentic emotional communication.
